Açai Breakfast Bowl

Start your day off right with this delicious açai bowl. Since this recipe only takes about 5 minutes to prepare, I make it at least 3 times a week. It is simple, sweet and full of nutritional benefits.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Depending on what you're making, choosing unsweetened or sweetened shredded coconut will of course dictate the nutrition profile, but coconut can be used in savory and sweet dishes. Both types of coconut are very high in saturated fat -high consumption of saturated fat may increase the risk for obesity, high cholesterol and heart disease.100 g of raspberries are just 52 calories, providing 16% of the daily recommended intake of fiber. Their natural sweetness may satisfy your sweet tooth. In addition, raspberries have potassium which aids in maintaining health blood pressure.
